Policies and Procedures
All fields on these forms are required information. Forms with missing information will not be processed. You must sign the registration form. You will be contacted to confirm we have received and acted upon your request.
Review course descriptions and prerequisite information of courses: (http://catalog.ocean.edu/AllCourses.aspx). Use Ocean Cruiser to be certain of the exact course/section you want, and to be certain whether or not that course/section still has availability.
ATTN: Course Registration
If someone else will be registering you in the Registration and Records Office, provide that person with a signed letter authorizing them to register on your behalf. Include the specific course(s). This person may be required to show identification.
*** You can request that Ocean County College send your transcript to your school using the transcript request form. http://www.ocean.edu/admissions/transcript_request.pdf
Once the semester begins, there will be a brief Drop/Add period, when you may adjust your schedule, with appropriate permission. Be very careful to note the refund dates printed on your bill/schedule. Also, note no registration of any kind can or will be accepted after the 50% refund period ends on the Attendance Census Date for each session. Courses must be dropped before the semester begins to be relieved of the financial obligation.
Students living in the area - Complete the drop section of the Add/Drop form in the Registration and Records Office.
Students living out of the area - Fax a letter requesting you be dropped from specific courses to the Registration and Records Office. This letter must be signed by the student and include the student’s id number, address, telephone number, and email address; term, course number, section, course title, of all courses which you would like to be dropped from.

Withdrawing from Courses
Students may withdraw from their classes during the semester. An official Add/Drop form must be submitted to the Registration and Records Office. Before the attendance census date students do not need a signature from the instructor on the Add/Drop form to withdraw from their classes. After the attendance census date students are required to obtain the signature from the instructor to withdraw from their class. Students are unable to withdraw from courses after the Withdrawal Deadline. Students who withdraw after the attendance census date are still financially responsible to the college for all tuition and fees subject to the applicable refund percentage. Failing to attend class will not relieve you of your financial responsibility, even if you have not paid your bill.
Students living in the area – Complete the drop section of the Add/Drop form. Obtain your “Last Date of Attendance” and a signature from the instructor on the form and return the completed form to the Registration and Records Office before the Withdrawal Deadline.
Students who do not live in the area – Email your instructor for your “Last Date of Attendance”. Fax a letter along with your instructors email, requesting you be withdrawn from specific courses to the Registration and Records Office before the Withdrawal Deadline. This letter must be signed by the student and include the student’s id number, address, telephone number, and email address; term, course number, section, course title of all course which you would like to be withdrawn from.
